Just over a month after NBC News fired Matt Lauer over sexual misconduct allegations, Hoda Kotb was named the new coanchor of the Today show on Tuesday, January 2. The cohosts of the morning show quickly took to Twitter to congratulate Kotb on her new role. Kathie Lee Gifford, who will continue to host the fourth hour of the show with Kotb as they have since 2008, tweeted, "So happy for my dear friend...Congratulations on being named the new Co Anchor...Nobody does it better!" Al Roker also offered a "hearty congratulations."
